Article 29 Data Protection Working Party Press Release, Brussels, 26 May 2010: EU data protection group says Google, Microsoft and Yahoo! do not comply with data protection rules

  • “The Article 29 Data Protection Working Party, a group of European data protection authorities, today told the three major search engine operators – Google, Yahoo! and Microsoft – that their methods of making users’ search data anonymous still do not comply with the European Union’s Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC. The Article 29 Working Party recognises the search engines’ efforts to bring their policies in line with European data protection legislation. However, in letters sent to the companies, the Working Party urges them to use an outside auditor to verify their commitments to make users’ internet search data truly anonymous.”
